Slipknot Bringing 'Knotfest Roadshow' To Canada
The Knotfest Roadshow is rolling into three Canadian cities this summer, Slipknot announced Tuesday.
“We set a precedent last year – Knotfest is a showcase where you never know what to expect. This year is no exception,” Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor said, in a release. “The bands we have represent all corners of our musical world, just like we do. And they’re exciting as hell. I can’t wait to watch and enjoy them along with the rest of the fans.”
Slipknot will play Quebec City’s Videotron Centre on June 4, Montreal’s Bell Centre on June 5 and Toronto’s Budweiser Stage on June 6 with A Day To Remember, Underoath and Code Orange.
“We are stoked to share the stage with a band that has defined heavy music for an entire generation,” Neil Westfall of A Day To Remember said, in a release. “This tour will be one of the best live shows this year.”
Tickets go on sale at 10 am on Feb. 7.
